Glenns Ferry was the railroad town in the County for many years. For generations it served as a terminal crew change point for the Union Pacific Railroad. In 1964, agricultural development near Glenns Ferry started to take place with the advent of high-lift pumps that could irrigate crops on the high benches south of the Snake River. As more agriculture developed, the town became less dependent on the railroad jobs and more dependent on agriculture. [1]
